OK, I finally have the dreaded day/night shade broken string. I can send it for repair, but looked at it and it seems to get it off you have to remove the decorative valance that covers it. How do I get it off? I see the brackets on the sides of the frame, but don't think they are the only ones holding the frame up. Has anyone done this? The dealer can do it if I pay, but it seems like I should be able to get the thing done!!!

My blinds are screwed through the top rail of the blinds into the valance. It is a little tricky to find the screws - you have to look from the window-side of the blind. To remove, first undo the cords at the bottom. Once they are undone, you can pull the shade out from the window and look up under the rail. There will be three or so screws holding them in.

I restrung one of my shades on my '02 Bounder and it was not that bad. There are lots of pictures on the web of the "routing", but once you have it down, it is pretty easy to tell where things are going. I went to a fabric store to purchase the cord.

Good luck -

I had to remove the larger one in our bedroom. The shade is attached to the valence. The top of the valence is attached to metal brackets that can be seen between the screen and window when the screen is totally raised. The sides are separate pieces. I was able to get the top of the valence loose with a long screwdriver and remove the top valence and screen together.

In the front of our coach, with both parts of the shade down, by pushing the shade to one side or the other (not much room) you can see screws through the shade into the top of the valence. You'll have to find and remove all those screws to get the shade out of the valance. You'll need an "assistant" to help hold the shade in place as you get more of the screws removed. (I haven't figured out how to remove the valences there where the top and sides are all one piece.)

I guess all the models are little different, but I was able to do mine from the inside and without removing any of the decorative valance. Raise the day/night shade completely. You then need to unscrew the "thingee" that attaches the cords to the wall. Of course when you detach the cords from the wall the blinds will try to slip down, so be sure to hold them up with one hand while you unscrew the attachments. OK, now that the blinds are free at the bottom, look for a screw going straight up through the top rail of the blind - one near each end. They may be over-tightened and almost out of sight, but they're there. Remove those 2 screws and the blind should still be supported by a clip about in the middle of the top rail. One side of the clip sticks down a bit and when you push it - bingo! the shade drops right out. Good luck...

On my last coach they were held up with spring clips just like residential vertical blinds with the release tabs between the header rail and the window.

Well, I am going to get an extra hand and look up under the valance to see if I can get them out!! I have to wait until the current freeze passes. It is cold here for this time of year in Nashville!!

YEAH, the blind id off and now will only have to worry about getting it put back up! Thanks for the help - it was 2 screws at each end and one clip in the middle. It was the style that tomsm had dealt with.

Thanks for everything
Barb
